Iran hangs Iranian-Dutch woman

The Dutch government has frozen all contacts with Iran in protest over the hanging of a Dutch-Iranian woman. The Dutch foreign ministry said it was “shocked, shattered by this act by a barbaric regime”. Sahra Bahrami, aged 46, was hanged for drug smuggling early on Saturday, Iranian officials said. Her family accuses Tehran of fabricating the case against her after she was detained for taking part in anti-government protests in 2009. The Dutch foreign ministry announced the freeze in all contacts with Iran on Saturday.
